Extra UK help for refugees arriving in Western Balkans
Tens of thousands of people who have made the dangerous journey to the Western Balkans will receive immediate, lifesaving humanitarian assistance with new funding from the UK Department for International Development.
A £5 million funding package is being released to the Start Network. This support will provide emergency relief supplies such as sleeping bags, towels, rain wear, hygiene kits, nappies, food and clean water for refugees and migrants in Greece, Serbia and Macedonia.
This support builds on the UK’s £20m funding for organisations including UNHCR, International Organisation for Migration and the International Red Cross to support refugees and migrants.
